August Pick:
10% Happier By Dan Harris
Many of us can relate well to the author, an ABC news reporter, as he shares his challenge in slowing down his constant racing thoughts that feed stress and anxiety and negatively impact his health. On his journey to calm his mind, he is candid about his initial skepticism related to self-help, spirituality, and meditation practices.

Volunteer opportunity to help rebuild Cocoa playground

Historic Cocoa Village Association
Date: Monday September 1, 2014
Time: 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Category: Kids / Family

Location: Taylor Park, Cocoa
Community Volunteers to help re-build Cocoa’s Taylor Park Playground
Volunteers will help install the new playground equipment and spruce up the park

On Monday, September 1, 2014 from 8am-12pm, approximately 50 volunteers, City Council and City staff will spread mulch, build picnic tables and perform many other tasks to prepare Taylor Park for the new playground equipment that was purchased with a grant from KaBOOM! and many generous donations from organizations such as Bank of America, Cocoa Main Street, the Ghering Group, Centennial Development Group, the Historic Cocoa Village Association, the Cocoa Village Bar and Restaurant Association, St. Marks Episcopal Academy, Running Zone, Community Bank of the South and many others including private citizen donations.

The new playground equipment will be installed the week prior by a certified playground installer, with the volunteers and staff putting the finishing touches on September 1st. Once the build event is complete, we will officially open the park to the public with a press event and ribbon cutting scheduled for 11:00am that day. Then Chick-fil-A will be providing lunch for all of the hard working volunteers.

Taylor Park was chosen for the KaBOOM! grant due to the location of the park in the busy downtown business district as well as for the age of the equipment. Taylor Park is the most used playground in the City of Cocoa because it is centrally located in the downtown business district and its proximity to Riverfront Park which is used for large community events. The equipment is approximately 15 years old.

The grant received from KaBOOM! was $20,000 and City of Cocoa staff had to raise the remaining $31,000 to complete the project with the two largest donations coming from Bank of America and Cocoa Main Street who have been instrumental in completing this project.

For more information on this great project and how you can assist, please contact Samantha Senger, Public Relations Specialist for the City of Cocoa at (321) 433-8685 or ssenger@cocoafl.org.
